OMG...are these little hand held mini quiches good...and 1 Point+ each? Are you kidding me? They even have a "crust"...and straight from the oven...it's crispy! Ever since I bought wonton wrappers, I have been having a lot of fun finding uses for them. I can see why Hungry Girl is in love with these things.
I had two for breakfast this morning with some mango on the side. So good. You can use any kind of filling additions you like. ( the filling additions you choose may change pp values) I used turkey bacon bits, baby spinach, roasted red peppers and reduced fat Swiss cheese. Great combo! But honestly, the possibilities are endless.
I found these new ( well new to me anyway) turkey bacon bits at my store a few weeks ago. This recipe was the perfect use for them. You can't go wrong with 20 calories and 1.5g fat per tablespoon.
These mini quiches make a great breakfast or brunch or a great lunch or fun light dinner when served with a side salad! Or how about for a snack? Low in fat and calories but higher in protein.

Calories - 51.3, Total Fat - 0.8g, Carb. - 5.3g, Protein - 5.3g, Fiber - 0.3g
8 wonton wraps
1 cup eggbeaters
2 TBS. Oscar Mayer Turkey bacon bits
1/4 cup shredded, reduced fat Swiss cheese
1 cup fresh baby spinach, chopped
2 TBS. chopped roasted red peppers
salt and pepper, to taste
1/4 tsp. dry mustard powder
1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Spray 8 wells of nonstick muffin tin liberally with cooking spray. ( this will help the "crust" brown and get crispy. Push a wonton wrapper into each prepared well, pressing it to the sides
2. In large bowl, combine the remaining ingredients. Fill each wonton wrapper muffin tin with the egg mixture equally. ( don't worry if some of the egg mixture goes above where the wrapper ends in the wells or seems to seep under)
3. Bake for 15 - 20 minutes or until the egg is completely set and the bottoms are brown. ( the eggs will puff up in the oven then settle down once out) Allow to cool in pan for 2 minutes before removing. Serve warm.
I used Swiss cheese in this quiche because Swiss is my favorite flavor of cheese with eggs. I am anxious to play around with other ingredients and cheese flavors in the future. I could definitely see making these for a brunch buffet, as they are so portable. Love that you can just pick them up and eat them without a fork or plate! The wonton wrapper really does mimic crust here in this recipe...and for only 51 calories each? How cool is that??
